Holiday Swimming Program Cairns

Our intensive swimming holiday program is designed to provide rapid progress in both swimming and survival skills over consecutive days.

During each school holidays, Tobruk Memorial Pool will be offering an intensive swimming holiday program. With lessons for children and adults of all ages and abilities.

These intensive swimming programs have become very popular in recent years around Australia and are a perfect solution to fast-track a child’s development and provide a healthy structured activity for them during the school holidays.

The swimming holiday program caters for all ages and abilities. We also offer adults lessons as part of the swimming holiday program. We follow the Swim and Survive program which is a comprehensive swimming and water safety initiative of Royal Life Saving.

Learn to swim, swimming lessons and infant aquatics are all terms commonly used across the aquatic industry for programs that seek to build swimming skills. Swim and Survive is all of these, but most importantly it ensures that the essential components of personal survival and water safety are provided, in addition to a process of developing strong and effective swimming technique.
